Samaneh Shahgaldi Ph.D.Professor
- PEMFC materials
- MEA assembly
Dr. Samaneh Shahgaldi is an Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair Tier II at the Chemistry, Bio-Chemistry and Physics department at the University of Quebec à Trois-Rivières. She obtained her Ph.D in Chemical engineering at 2012 and worked as a research associate at Fuel Cell and Green Energy Lab at University of Waterloo for 6 years. She was also worked as a Senior Research Scientist at Cummins/ Hydrogenics dealing with different PEM Fuel Cell and PEM Water electrolyzer projects.
Dr. Shahgaldi is an award-wining researcher with unique interdisciplinary expertise in nanomaterials, organic chemistry, and chemical engineering.
She has made foundational contributions to research in synthesis of novel nanomaterials and engineer the surface properties for fuel cells and hydrogen storage applications. She is also directed several R&D projects in the development of next-generation membrane electrode assembly (MEA) and components, shaped catalysts, novel nanofibers and ionomers.
